Special Note:

This is the last week that these posts will be cross-posted here and on Graphic Medicine. Beginning next week, you will need to check, follow, or subscribe to that site for these updates! I will periodically post other content here in the future – perhaps a post about that next week…

Also Special Note:

The Pathographics conference is happening in Berlin this weekend! You’ll find tweets here from the opening night and the full first day of the event. The rest of the conference will be featured in next week’s post – and I’ll try to get a solid Storify going if no one else tackles it. SO much good coming out of it!

‘This Week in Graphic Medicine’ highlights relevant articles (and tweets) about comics in medicine published during the week (Saturday – Friday). Links are typically presented without commentary, unless clarification of relevance is necessary, with credit given to those who flagged them up where possible. So without further ado…

Articles & More…
